Peppermint Brownies

This simple brownie recipe was inspired by the Peppermint Brownie Fudge Trifle I made recently.

The peppermint flavor gives these brownies a refreshing little kick- almost like you're not eating a rich little treat at all. ;)

1 box of your favorite brownie mix (I like to use Ghirardelli Double Chocolate)
The following three ingredients vary based on the brownie mix:
1/4 cup water
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
1/2 tsp peppermint extract
1/3 cup crushed peppermints or candy canes

Mix water, vegetable oil, egg, and peppermint extract. Add brownie mix and mix until well blended. Spray an 8x8 baking dish with cooking spray. Bake on 325 for 38 minutes.* Remove and allow to sit for 3-5 minutes before cutting.

While brownies are baking, crush peppermint using a food processor (this one is perfect for small jobs).

Sprinkle with crushed peppermint before serving.

*Cook time and temp vary based on brownie mix.

I've also made a double batch of these brownies for a larger crowd using a 9x11 pan and added an extra layer of crushed peppermint in the middle. So tasty and refreshing!

I'll be back tomorrow to share an update on this pregnancy!
